Oh stop! Now you're just being contrary, and without just cause:

This guitar has the maple/ mahogany boundary you like, and no, it seems they don't offer binding as an option.

I think that's only available on their AE, thin body offerings.

I like the SH550 better...especially in the Spalted Maple or the Claro Walnut.

That picture I posted is an almost dead stock offering. Only gold hardware and high gloss finish are extras. Besides it's a midi-synth! And for just under 2K!

NO I'm serious, i don't like the way Carvins look. Those ones aren't that bad, but I still would never choose to buy one. I hate dot inlays, their block inlays(they are just so big and over powering, imo), the headstock(though I really hate their other headstock). And on this particular one the spacing for the volume and tone knobs just seem off. I just don't like Carvin's style But then again, I drool over florescent 80s guitars, and I'm sure they are hated by some.

Hated by just "some", you say..... I'm sure it wouldn't be a stretch to bump that pronoun "some", up to a "many"....

And may God forgive me for asking, but do you like them bound, or unbound.....?

Hard to say, I can't recall seeing any bound florescent 80s models. They are generally pretty plain with black hardware. I suppose I'm not against it though.

SO this was the guitar I picked up that weighed a tonne.

Way heavier that the $1000 Gibsons.

Yeah, I don't really get what all that stuff is. I haven't had time to look it up.

Nice choice, I've heard some very nice tones out of that guitar from youtube demos, rewatching them just now I really want one. But I'm already looking at a Godin Duet Nylon, did just sell and old electric so my stand has room for one more :P
